Industrial Advisory Board

Our Industrial Advisory Board is a group of alumni and regional and state industry stakeholders who share an interest in helping guide and enhance the electrical engineering program. Representation tends to be from major industry sectors that have a need for ensuring the program produces well-qualified graduates.

Members serve as a sounding board for curriculum changes, faculty expertise focus (when hiring), and a resource to aid in the accreditation process. Members are also welcome to participate by sharing their industry insight with students and faculty via seminar presentations, club visits and offering technical expertise via colloquium presentations. Over the years, members have also hosted students for tours of their facilities.
